Dog training collar


ChuckN

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I trained a dog. What ever happen to a good old whistle and hand signals? I found that a dog responds much better to positive reinforcement and CONSISTANCY during training.

Tvboy- I must have missed in Chucks posts where he asked for training advice. He asked for a collar, if you have one great. If not please keep your comments about his training practices to yourself.

Chuck- I can usually get some pretty good deals on new collars. Tri Tronics, Innotek and Dogtra. Personally I like the Dogtra the best, five years and never been in the shop. Take a peek at the websites then decide which collar might be right for you and let me know. I will check on the price and get back to you.

I just bought a new TriTronics Sport 60 for my dog and found that they are pretty much the same price at your typical outdoor retail store as anyplace that I could find on the web. Of course, that's if you decide to buy new.........

Thanks setterguy. Unfortunately I can't afford the new prices. Just looking for one that someone doesn't have a use for...say under $150 or so.

I know how to use these TV boy. I decided I need another for my 2nd lab.

Sorry, Chuck. No offense intended. I am new to the site and was just curious if people still use "old school" training or if the collars are indeed better. I would guess they are since so many people use them.

I digress, another topic perhaps?

Chuck- I can get you a Dogtra 200 NC. Which has a 300 yard range with Nick and Constant stimuli for 160.00. Or one that goes up to 1/2 mile for 200.00.

ChuckN, I have a Tri tonics sport 50 I would sell cheap. I don't use it anymore. 2 new batteries included. I had a Lab trained by a professional trainer, when I got her back she was a basket case. We had to put her on tranquilizers for a month after. This fall when I trained my Llewellin setter pup I did it collar free.

Not quite sure why TV Boy got slammed so hard by setterguy concerning his opinion regarding e-collars. I thought this was supposed to be a open, fair, friendly and informative forum. I have read many topics in the past where replies have wandered just a bit past dead center of the original post question. What is FM's official site policy regarding the reprimand of members by moderators who feel the member's reply does not match 100% with either the moderators opinion or that of the original question posted. Thanks!

Willie- You should understand that this isn't the first time that someone has posted a questioin about collars and someone chimed in with thier "opinion" about thier use. Then it turns into a battle about the use of collars in general and Chucks question gets lost in the shuffle. If Tv boy or anyone else does want to start a new thread about the use of collars feel free. This site and board will work a lot better if people can have thier questions about a specific topic answered without someones personal thoughts on whether its right or wrong. I didn't mean to come down on anybody, just trying to keep things sailing smoothly.

Setterguy I've read allot of your posts and have noticed you have allot of knowledge, I have also learned a few things from the several topics you have discussed. But when your rude and inconsiderate of a new f'mer it stands out like a sore thumb. You say you didn't mean to come down on tv boy, you were just trying to make this site run more smoothly, then maybe you should do your job and you should of moved Chuck's post to the items wanted forum where it belongs. Oh I didn't mean to come down on you either, I am just trying to make this site run more smoothly. In the future please try and remember how you would feel if you got jumped on when you were new to fm. "Would you still be visiting this site"

Try the collar clinic.web page. You can get repaired collars for less than the new ones and they do last. I went with a new Dogtra. I like it but now I am getting a new pup so I might have to get another one. I hope the off season training wil pay off so I can take it off of one and use it on another.

Spinach - I explained my enentions, I am truely sorry that it came across that way. Its impossible to decifer tone in type so again I apologize to Tv - boy for coming down on him. That was not my intent. Chuck has earned his pro staff title and as far as I'm concerned can post what ever wherever he wants it. Check out his post in Items wanted, not one reply. I do stand by my posistion that if you have something relevant to add to someones question then by all means post it. If not, start your own topic and banter about the use of collars all day long. When we start posting off topic, ecspecially on a topic that some people feel strongly about (like the use of collars) the thread turns into a debate about the use of collars and Chucks question gets lost in the shuffle. Tv boy being new has probably never seen it happen but if you have been around you know just what I'm talking about. If we keep our responses on topic, more people will get thier questions answered and more people will use this site, agian I apologize for how it came across.

PS- see how we are talking about something other than Chucks question? wink.gif

Keep the tip up, ask permission and shoot straight. Setterguy

Setterguy and Spinach - bravo, great, well done and enough said! You both have hit the nail right on the head. Setterguy you do a great job...I have learned a great deal from your insightful comments the past few months. I look forward to many more informative and educational days ahead. I have found this particular forum to be the most informative and educational of all the FM forums. Let's all keep it that way. Free exchange of ideas and common experiences by as many people as possible in a considerate and welcoming environment is the key to becoming better gun dog owners and ultimately a better class of people!

All this from a simple request for a dog collar.

It must be winter, and none of us have anything better to do. smile.gif

I posted in this forum and Items wanted forum. I believe I first posted in Items Wanted, and figured I probably wouldn't get a response, and I did not. I went here knowing I probably shouldn't, but this is where the dog pros hang out.

I did get offers here as this is the place I need to look. Thanks to all who responded and I believe I found what I was looking for!

Setterguy is right and I didn't get the impression that he was rude. This is the internet, we can't tell moods and tones here. So, no hard feelings guys. I'm glad we didn't sway way off the topic too far.

Setterguy I also agree with you about posting off topic etc... I also respect you even more for apoligizing to tv boy for coming off disrespectful, rude and inconsiderate. My only disagreement was no matter how you intended your original statement towards tv boy, it definitely was not a good first impression of what this site really is. If you would of simply replied "please stick to the original question" or something similar, we wouldn't have as many problems in the future. Thankyou, Spinach grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      You could do Isanti to St. Francis also.  About mid way is Anderson Park that has a small sandy access.  Anderson Park to St. Francis had fewer but some bigger fish while Isanti to Anderson Park had better numbers and not as many big fish.   All upstream from Isanti to the access on Hwy 95 can be hit or miss but if you hit it, it can be good.   Up to 16’s is fairly common bit there are enough 16-20’s to not be shocked if you get one or more.   I’d never admit to this while I lived there. 😉

      Some pressure but nothing like lake fishing

      Hey thanks guys, I appreciate your input. It sounds like this float might be best to put off a year when the water is up a little higher. I'll check the gage next summer and see how it looks. I was hoping to get into some 18 to 20" fish (aren't we all), so maybe they will have moved back in there by then.   Does the stretch south of St. Francis get very much pressure on it? I'll have to give it a look.    
    • Kettle
      Little more narrow up there, if I were to do it, I'd float St Francis to Andover. Shallow yes but it's a good stretch to fish

      I fished it further south near Milaca/Princeton a couple times in late July.  It was OK then but dropping.  The second time we definitely bumped more rocks and grounded out in a couple riffles.  I use a 10 foot jon boat that can float through a couple inches of water.  We caught 15-20 smallmouth both times, but nothing over 16 inches.  I think the drought last year sent the bigger fish out of there.  It may take a few years to recover.   You can check the flow on the DNR website.  There is a live gauge right in Onamia.  Anything below 11 feet is too low for me.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/csg/site.html?id=21018002

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Lol he broke a muskie drought that had started in 2006.  16 years without a legal muskie!

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.
    • Caleb9
      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.
    • Caleb9
      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay
